Crime and Punishment

Date: 27 Nov 2018

Raskolnikov is surrounded by the harsh injustices of the world: the grime of poverty and prostitution, unscrupulous pawnbrokers chasing debts, and a sister about to marry someone she doesn’t love to keep her family alive.

Chris Hannan’s fresh adaptation of one of the most extraordinary novels of all time gets inside the mind of a starving, destitute student who commits a brutal murder and embarks on a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with the examining magistrate.

As his guilt and alienation from society intensifies, only Sonia, a downtrodden prostitute offers any hope of redemption.

Anthony Skuse directs this Secret House production. Jane Angharad, Hannah Barlow, Tim Kemp, Philippe Klaus, Beth McMullen, Madeleine Miller, James Smithers, Shan-Ree Tan, Charles Upton and Natasha Vickery feature.
